    The Best Medicine

    Laughter is truly the best medicine. Along with music, laughter helps me deal with my stress. It relaxes me and helps me focus. I can’t imagine not having these two things in my life, especially when I’m dealing with problems.

    Depends On the Type

    There is more than one kind of laughter.  Laughing AT people does not reduce stress, it simply reinforces prejudice and anger.  Laughing at YOURSELF and the complete absurdity of your self-importance and your vanities IS a good way to relieve stress, because it puts you...
